Canadian tennis star Bianca Andreescu has been forced to withdraw from the Madrid Open after revealing Sunday that she tested positive for COVID-19.
In a post on Twitter, Andreescu said that prior to traveling to Madrid she had two negative tests. Upon arrival, she found out a third test had come back positive.
“I am feeling good, I am resting, and continuing to follow the health protocols and safety guidelines,” Andreescu wrote. “I look forward to getting back on the court very soon.”

Andreescu returned to competition in February of this year after suffering from a torn meniscus a month after winning the U.S. Open in 2019. Earlier this month, she exited the Miami Open final against world number one Ash Barty in tears following a tumble on the court that led to an injured foot.
